Sexual Harassment in the Arab World

I found this article about violence against women, specifically in Cairo. After focusing on issues on a more international level in our resource packs I thought this article was relevant to the class. The article made me more aware of the severity of harassment and violence against women internationally. ¬†While this is something that we think we may know about, it is something we often forget because it does not affect us directly. ¬†Reading about the struggles women are facing daily can help us to understand no matter how far we’ve come in the US in regards to women’s rights, other countries still have so far to go.
